On a beautiful summerlike day on Thursday, April 18, the Mount Shasta Lady Bears traveled to Fall River to face the Lady Bulldogs in Shasta Cascade League action.

While giving it their all the Bears lost both games, the first 1-55 and the second 17-3.

The Bulldogs showed their senior class experience both offensively and in the circle. The Bears were able to get five hits in the first game starting with a first at bat triple by leadoff hitter Lily Hitchcock, Bella Powers and Adrienne Andrus with doubles and a single by Sydney Chase.

In the second game the Bears were only able to produce three hits, including singles by Powers, Andrus and Chase.

Freshman Bliss Powers pitched both games for the Bears throwing over 200 pitches, never backing down from a tough batting order.

Head coach Blake Powers said he was proud of the team never giving up.

“This is a young team, only three returning seniors,” he said.

Powers said he sees a strong future for the team as they gain more experience – they learn from a loss just like a win.

On Tuesday, April 16, Mount Shasta fell to the Ashland Lady Grizzlies 12-1 at home in a non-league contest.

The Lady Bears (2-2 in the SCL) will travel to Weed on Friday to play the Lady Cougars (1-3) in SCL action.
